of education, research and development, innovation energy. there are things we can do about it but we have to do them together as a country. that's our goal. >> i do think it's important to put in context and remember just how dark the days were four years ago and how in the middle of that meltdown, people were thinking about going to caves and getting spam and guns. it was dark. not only the president, but the president working with george w. bush and others really pitched in and had to make very tough decisions and a lot of hard votes that got a lot of people unelected from office to get us through that. >> when we got our first economic briefings, i wanted to get some spam and go into a cave. i know what you're talking about. >> that's why this is such an opportunity, though, for the president right now. the problems we're talking about are structural. they've been there for a long time. this declining middle class has gone on for two decades. it isn't just the recession. that means investing. this is where the problem of the debt comes in. if you're going to get bet

reviving education for grade school and for university. he talked about climate change. now, he's talked about a$é+m) @% these things before. so none of this comes as a surprise. but he also talked about the need to organize. that citizens involved, and it's not a coincidence that he's making those points to and othe just a couple of days after he has transformed his political presidential campaign into an organizing outfit now called organizing for action, that jim messina and others will be in charge of. so i think he is aiming for those far away fences for things you would like to see him do, chris, but it's going to happen. not just if he wants to do it, but if he can mobilize enough political support to try to get over some of that republican obstructionism. >> joan, the same question. did you see the beef today? terms of substantive accomplishments worthy of a second term? >> i did, chris. it was a soaring speech. it was an inspiring speech. but it was also as david said practical nuts and bolts, talking about the highway system, talking about we don't want people standing in line

on their threat to take the country into default? i mean, the president spent a hot of time today educating the american people and cutting to the chase and being brilliant on the basics about what the ramifications would be. your thoughts. >> my thought is that they seem to be this time headed for a real trauma. i voted no on the last bailout a couple of weeks ago because i knew that the real fight was going to come on this debt ceiling. and they think that this is the way. now, it's like handing the keys to a john deere tractor to a 6-year-old and let him try and drive it. these guys, they have no idea what they're doing to the economy. and they will wreck it because they think that that way they'll get their way on some other things. it is simply -- you can't -- if the facts made any difference, the president would win the day totally. but the facts don't -- it doesn't make them move at all. they simply believe that if they are tough enough and bring enough chaos, they will get what they want. and they don't understand what they're asking for. it is really scary to me. >> well, it's scar

off their insistence on holding our economy hostage to extract drastic cuts in medicare, education and programs middle class families depend on. the temporary nature of the increase is somewhat troubling. a white house official told nbc news it's a terrible way to run the country. but the aide gave no indication president obama would veto a temporary extension if this is how congressional republicans want to govern, so be it. they already have an approval rating of, let's see, 14% from the american people. can they do better than that? maybe they just want to see how low it can go. the writing was on the wall yesterday when republican budget chairman paul ryan told members they need to be prepared for a debt ceiling increase. the attitudes from republican leaders are a lot different today. senator jon cornyn of texas wrote an op-ed in the houston chronicle in hughes son saying it may be necessary to partially shut down the government in order to secure the long-term fiscal well-being of the country. now cornyn tells the chronicle editorial board we will raise the debt ceiling. we a

to educate us. >> that was well-done. >> alex, you jump in here. parents will take risks with money knowing in the end even if they're not rich when they're old, they will have something so they spend all their money on tuition and raising kids. so i thought that was what he was talking about which is really important about our country. your thoughts, alex? >> i think one of the things that's been underdiscussed in terms of how progressive this message was is the foreign policy piece. advocating for engagement against the backdrop of a hostage situation in algeria is a very firm flag to plant in the ground. to say that as we see al qaeda cells multiplying, taking over a host of failed states in north africa and now west africa. to say these are not our enemies, that we can come in peace, that we can have peaceable relations with evil actors in the world is very much obama 1.0. for him to say that now i thought was really, really remarkable if you're talking about hawk versus dove, progressive versus conservative. >> i thought that was a direct message to the mullahs and to the people of ira
and spelled it out. healthcare, energy, education. he has done healthcare. that's fairly radical. 18% of the economy. now he is talking about energy. the second thing. if you took an outsider and said what is the main issue of our time? it's the crisis of the entitlement state. it's insolvent. it's advanced in europe where they are out of money and we are going to get there in a couple of years. there is nothing in the speech about that. not even recognition there is a crisis. tall programs of the 20th century were enacted with the life expectancy is 62. medical technology is eventually non-existent. he said i'll take that, defend that and expanding the entitlement by adding obamacare he said i'll do energy that he spoke about a month after the first inauguration. with climate change and continue on the road in green energy stuff. he wants to create what he thinks he can in washington, new industry, string of solyndras until the end of time. expanding entitlement state in crisis. there is no change from who he was in 2009. he never has to be re-elected so he can be utterly unbound an

their children in a classroom with a teacher engaging in the reason they are there, education. we should not ask our teachers to be armed. they have come out against this in a multitude of venues. i find it just almost ludicrous that the answer to gun violence is more guns, that is not the solution that the american people want, and we, frankly, you know, deserve to live in communities that are gun violence-free. jenna: eric, quick final thought? >> the polls just don't bear that out. gallop showed last month that more americans want armed teachers and principals than want gun restrictions. even the chiefs of police that have been polled and surveyed on this. 79% of them think that people should be able to carry firearms concealed. so it's just not true to say that the american people don't want this. we live in a culture -- jenna: as a journalist i can say a lot of numbers deserve a lot more context than we can provide for them today. >> can i mention one thing. the gallop poll was proven to be ineffective and categorically wrong in a number of areas in the fall elections. i'm not sure we want
but that is not stopping a teachers grew from hand-picking bill ayers. he will address teacher educators next month in atlanta. ayers was involved in a townhouse bombing in new york city that left three people dead. >>steve: singer james taylor says he knows what gun owners want. >> i think the majority of us feel strongly, even the majority of gun owners feel strongly that we need to make some sacrifice to our freedoms if that's the way to put it. >>brian: is he wearing scalia's hat? >>steve: taylor made the comment after performing at the inauguration. advocates very concerned about the president's proposal on gun control if you take aspirin, it can triple your chances of going blind. those who take it on a regular basis can cause age related macular degeneration. >>gretchen: they tell you to take it for your heart and blood thinning. >>steve: the low dose. >>gretchen: watch this. a huge lighting fixture falls from above landing on the child during a meet in wisconsin. he had just gotten into position to start up the match again when it happened. luckily he only needed a few stitches. no word on
paying lots of taxes relative to their income, and they need help. we need more education work being done in this country. we need a solid immigration policy. we have to look at climate change. there are a lot of things that the american people are expecting, and the republican party, as they get ready for the next election, really has to focus on some of these issues and not ignore them. >> chris, what's sad to me about that is that by virtue of mentioning the phrase climate change, it's almost like colin powell has kicked himself out of the republican party. this party used to play ball on that issue. now they're denying the actual science behind it. they have swung so far right, and my question after all of this, after that interview which was incendiary and was very much a line in the sand for the gop -- >> it's history making. >> -- when will the republican party admit they have a problem? because every time something like this happens, there is a doubling down, there is a defense, there is an attack on the messenger. there is a problem here. the party is in crisis, and someone has g

, the vetting of people that get these firearms and an overall education for americans who possess them is going to change this country. >> okay. but let me -- i think that's all very valid. i do. and i think these are all very relevant points. but when you have a family like this who have been destroyed by what has happened. you saw, ashley -- kendra, when you hear people try to insist on saying that these ar-15 weapons are not assault weapons, what do you say to that? >> it's really impossible for me to understand that the killers could get that kind of power in their hands. it doesn't make any sense at all to me. and i don't blame honorable gun owners. i don't want to take away your second amendment rights. but i need to know that you'll stand up for me, too. i mean, you should be carrying that second amendment right with honor and being proud that that's not accessible to everybody. >> scottie, let me ask you. the man that ruined the lives of this family, he's just been in court recently. he got 6,000 rounds of ammunition on the internet anonymously. he armed himself with four weapons. and t
't got a clue and they actually support something they think is law. so the education part of it is one aspect of it. but you've also got the sheer power, the emotion of the 9/11 families style approach where you've got the sandy hook families coming in, it's very hard to oppose -- it's not about the president. you've got -- it's not even about bloomberg's money that's going to go into the advertising. the emotional force of the sandy hook families is just like it was with the 9/11 families. and republicans have got to face up to that. frankly, democrats have to face up and grow a spine here as well. they have run away from the gun debate for 20 years or so because it's helped them get into power in some states. >> by the way, there are 30 to 40 democrats in the house, too, will also fight any reasonable, rational reforms. you know, one of the moments yesterday, richard, that i thought was really telling, i thought one of the president's strongest moments is when he said if you have a congressman or congresswoman that supports assault weapons, ask them why. see, that's where the extremi
dangers of military action against iran. i think that's where we are now. >> we're now in a cambodian re-education camp. >> i'm not sure i'd use that analogy, but i think they're trying to basically make hagel be in line with the absolute conventional wisdom in congress, which is that you say military action is on the table, which is okay, but you don't say that military action could have very dangerous consequences. >> yeah. let me go to joan on this. joan, and i watched this group. we're both doves. and i think i just am very skeptical of any wars, these bite-sized wars. what we confront with iran will be hardly bite-sized. not a neat war where we do the job and live with it. in saying these are dangerous propositions, it seems to me evidence of sanity. >> it's absolutely sanity. he's also called the defense budget bloated. they'll probably get him to walk that back even though it's true. he called for an earlier exit from afghanistan than perhaps the president would have backed at the time that he said it. although things have changed since hagel said it. so it's a terrifically important piece
life and better education, that's for sure. >> what was the inspiration. >> i'm fortunate to be brought up in the family i was. i had good parents. they gave me everything. but there are some children whose parents have done mistakes and they are also suffering. and i think that i should give it to them. >> and if some of your kids were watching, what do you want to say to them? >> their mamu did it, and i'm sure you're proud of me, whatever i'm doing. >> i'm proud of you too. >> thank you. >>> and we are proud of all the people who showed up for the second inauguration of the president. look how beautiful the capitol looks tonight. and look at all of the gorgeous faces! out on the mall. they showed up. to be with us here at cnn. and we are very happy that they're here, because we're getting ready for the presidential inauguration and you might be asking, why do we do it, other than it is the law. wendy walsh is a human behavioral psychologist, and wendy, you say there is a bit of a fine line here. we americans walk during an inauguration, right? >> reporter: it's true, don. i think tha

no more illegal abortion, no more coat hanger abortion. we've got to reach out and educate a younger generation. second, that younger generation really knows how to use social media. i don't. i don't have a facebook. i don't have a twitter. we've got to get more of them involved because they're really better at organizing a younger group than those of us who are somewhat old are. i think the other thing is bringing back in women of my generation who do remember what it was like. part of the case started because women who were graduate students at the university of texas were upset because at the university of texas health center you could not get contraception unless you certified you were within six weeks of marriage, so there were a lot of unplanned pregnancies, and then they were asking information about where could they go for abortion, and these women who were doing counseling were trying to tell them where -- illegal places, but keep them out of the bad illegal places. it's why the medical community has always been so supportive of abortion being legal. >> sarah, thank you very
like high unemployment in minority communities and education. other things he'd ask. >> first, i would ask the president of the united states give a shout out to the hip-hop community. >> shannon travis, cnn, washington. >> well, they're going to have their chance to see what happens. so here is the thing. it's pretty nice out here tonight. it's going to be chilly out here tomorrow and then people are going to warm it up, get their dancing shoes on and go to the balls. it's really all about the balls for a lot ever people. we want to check in on a couple of them getting started tonight. don lemon is at the hip-hop ball and brooke baldwin is at the red, white, and blue concert ball. don, you are at the hottest ticket right now. and you look ready for it. >> reporter: of what do you mean it's going -- it's chilly out here right now. that's why i'm wearing the hat so don't ask. everyone is asking me about the hat. i said the hat is because it's cold, and i'm warm. but, yes, we are. we're here at the harmon hen ser and right behind that ryder truck, believe it or not, that's where the red
-called reform movement in education. and so many people are happy to see that garfield high school is standing up and pushing back and saying education should be much more than just testing. >> is there a fear that kids won't be able to pass these tests? i mean, how is it harmful to students? >> well, that's not really the fear at all. i think there's so many things that are deeply flawed about this specific test. first of all, the test was brought to us under an utter scandal. former superintendent john so that sat on the board of the company that made the test and sells the test that we adopted in the seattle public schools for over $4 million. and it's not me who has a problem with that but it was actually the state auditor came in and found that to be a, quote, ethics violation. so garfield high school teachers are saying we're not going to administer an ethics violation. but more than that, what we're worried about with this test is that, one, it's not aligneded to our curriculum. so the math teachers tell me that there's questions on the ninth grade math portion that aren't taught until
are being stolen. they work in exploitive, dangerous jobs, sell their bodies, miss out on an education and live in servitude. to help these children, we need to see them. join us and learn how you can help end child trafficking. >> so powerful and when i heard you say 5.5 million children, i had to go back and confirm that number. because that is just stunning to me, and it's also here in the united states there's human trafficking in all 50 states there have been reports of human trafficking. so, how do you tackle a problem that is that big and also clearly underground? >> i think that's part of why i'm here today is trying to obviously when you bring an issue like this, you bring a light to it, it's completely shocking and overwhelming, and i wanted to be able to come out and talk about the slutolutions. and obviously that is unicef, unicef is the only organization that is worldwide out of 190 countries, they're in 190, 150 of them have child welfare programs. and it's just -- it was one of those things where i was, like, how is this even possible and now how do we fix it. and it's a
news stories i've done on kids cheating. look at the word. cheater. it's awful. but educators say that many kids would rather cheat than fail. this young woman who asked us not to use her name or university was a cheater. >> a lot of students feel very stressed and pressured and get cornered and trap themselves. they mentally trap themselves and feel like they have no other way out. so then they cheat. >> that brings us back to lance armstrong because it makes you wonder, did he cheat because he felt stressed or pressured or cornered or did that come later when the money and prestige started rolling in. so the talk back question today, why do we cheat? facebook.com/carolcnn or you can tweet me @carolcnn. also today at 3:00 p.m. eastern, a special report with more on the psychology and science behind cheating. multi-car, paid in full -- a most fulsome bounty indeed, lord jamie. thou cometh and we thy saveth! what are you doing? we doth offer so many discounts, we have some to spare. oh, you have any of those homeowners discounts? here we go. thank you. he took my shield, my lady. t
announced. better gun owner and safety education and mental health support and helping develop emergency responses and the rest but when the president goes to gun control i think the public support and bipartisan support drops dramatically. there is a fox news poll shows only 22% of americans believe more gun control would have actually stopped an incident in newtown where as 71% think the criminals will get guns anyway. the 71% are right. there sim peer call evidence that shows it. i think it is a mistake to go after gun control. >> criminals will always get guns. go ahead, i'm sorry. martha: go ahead, alan. >> criminals will always get guns. doesn't mean you don't make laws. if that is the case you didn't make laws because people would always break them. according to gallup, 53% support president's on gun control. "time" magazine as 56%. there is great support in congress and senate at least among the american people for the president to do what he wants to do. martha: we have another poll we want to look at. it shows basically americans believe the most important thing is to protect t
, in the past, made available educational health services for refugees. it's only very recently that they've begun to build camps for the syrian refugees. >> what happens to all of these people? do they stay in other countries? is there a likelihood, a possibility that they can go back home to syria? >> well, we met with a great many of them and they have really agonizing stories about the situation back in their home country of targeted killings, abductions and terror, of sexual violations, kids who witnessed family members being killed. and yet inspite of that they very much express a desire to go back to syria, but the fact is they have no place to go back to, probably won't for some time. so we're talking about a long-term humanitarian emergency among the refugee communities outside of syria and even greater crisis inside syria, where there are over 2 million people displaced, another 2 million who have no food, shelter, way of coping with winter there. so the needs are enormous. the neighbors of syria have done a commendable job in extending hospitality to those who came across the b

educational rights and privacy act. but a child psychologist says six year olds are not developed enough to understand why their game got them booted out of school. here is what some other people think. >> i think they've gotten a little strict and a little bit overboard on a lot of things. i definitely don't think it was warranted and if i was a parent i would be highly upset. >> gestures of guns and stuff like that would not be so much appropriate for in school, you know, especially recess. >> reporter: i mentioned two cases. the first case was a six-year-old boy who used his hand to threaten another student a couple of times, but his suspension was reversed after the parents absolutely irate, appealed this, and won. megyn? >> boy, times have changed since the 1970's when i went to school in my cow girl outfit with two fake guns in the holesters, trace. >> reporter: i know. and then you could play dodgeball, now you can't. >> megyn: i'm glad that's gone. but i got some scars that haven't healed from those experiences. and sadly, we are living in different times. all right, trace, tha
and his career accomplishments, including the first beer he ever drank, his sexual education at the hands of his high school principal, the time he took drugs in a new mexico december cert and met god. we wanted the book to be a well-rounded portrait of who he is and i think that's the book he turned in to us. >> i want to remind some of our viewers, some of the fun that you've poked at joe biden over the years. clearly a lot of material to work with. here's one of the headlines. "biden says, life better than it was four years ago but nothing can change summer of '87." "joe biden hitchhikes to democratic national convention."
